Gardeners create a colourful display
A COLOURFUL display of flowers, fruit and vegetables was created during the annual Pill and District Gardening Club Members’ Show.
St George’s Church Hall in Easton-in-Gordano was taken over by green-fingered villagers and their entries for the event which attracted a good crowd of visitors.
